Cellulose Insulation Service in Greater Lexington & Georgetown Areas

Cellulose Insulation Service | Lexington & Georgetown, KY

A tight thermal barrier in your attic will provide superior indoor comfort in your home while helping you save on energy costs. That is a goal for every homeowner, but it is one that is difficult to achieve.

By adding cellulose insulation from Weatherization Plus to your attic, however, it can be done. Cellulose insulation, an eco-friendly product made from recycled paper materials, can be sprayed or blown into attic walls. It will fill in your nooks and crannies and conform to cavities in the attic to create the tight thermal barrier that you seek for your home in the Georgetown and Lexington, KY area.

The fluffy, lightweight material carries an insulation value up to R-4 per inch. Because of its composition and the fact that it can be blown into place, cellulose insulation requires far less energy to manufacture than traditional fiberglass batt insulation. Studies show that it requires six times more energy to manufacture fiberglass batt insulation for a home than manufacturing cellulose to insulate the same home at the same R-value.

Because it is treated with a borate solution, cellulose insulation is a deterrent to mold, mildew and pests. It also carries a Class 1 fire safety rating that will provide peace of mind for you and your family members.

Go "Green" by Choosing Cellulose Insulation

Because insulation materials are designed to save energy, they are considered "green" products. Our cellulose insulation takes "green" to another level, however. It contains up to 85 percent recycled paper materials. Processed in grinding machinery, the recycled paper winds up being useful, energy-efficient insulation rather than taking up space in a landfill.

Cellulose Resists Fire, Insects & Mold

Without question, the best added-value benefit to our cellulose insulation is the fact that it is fire retardant, as well as resistant to mold and insects. This stems from the unique, two-stage manufacturing process that injects both dry and liquid fire retardants into the cellulose fibers, earning a Class 1 fire safety rating. This process limits the amount of oxygen needed to support a fire.

The borate solution used to treat the cellulose also makes it resistant to mold and insects, a key attribute for attic environments. 

Get More Versatility with Cellulose Insulation

Because cellulose is a loose-fill substance, it offers more versatility in insulation installations than other substances.

Attic solution. Our cellulose insulation offers an affordable and effective way to upgrade your attic protection. Treated to resist fire, insects and mold, it can usually be blown into place on top of existing attic insulation.

It can be applied by using blowing equipment, a common approach for insulating attics. Cellulose also can be blown into wall cavities and other enclosed spaces. To make this happen, technicians drill a small hole into the cavities and inject the insulation to fill the cavity. When the job is complete, the access holes are plugged.

Wet-spray cellulose, another application option, occurs when a binder compound or liquid adhesive is mixed into the dry cellulose and added to open cavities found in new construction projects. The wet cellulose must be sticky but not so saturated that it settles or falls out of place.
